When I read The Kite Runner for the first time, I was in awe. The story painted a picture of what life might be like for fathers and sons in war-torn Afghanistan and it was of course heartbreaking. But as a writer, I was inspired by author Khaled Hosseini’s character development, and uncanny ability to draw readers in and empathize with the protagonist—even after he stepped aside and allowed his best friend to be raped.

Living in the PNW sure has its charms, and access to lovely local wines and brews is one of them.

“Ascend to the city’s highest peak…no hiking boots required. Stretch your imagination, change your outlook, get a new perspective.”, says the official website for the Sky View Observatory, which stands proud on the 73rd floor of the Columbia Center.

Planning ahead for summer fun—locally + globally.
